31st Street extension to be studied more

April 30, 2008


City commissioners are fine with taking a more detailed look at how to best extend 31st Street.

Commissioners unanimously agreed to a request by the Douglas County Commission to expand an existing study of the roadway. Currently, the city is studying how to best extend 31st Street from Haskell Avenue to O'Connell Road. The county is asking that the study also look at how to extend 31st Street from Haskell to County Route 1057 between Lawrence and Eudora.

The additional study is expected to cost $220,000. The county is slated to pay $210,000 of the cost, with the city picking up the rest.

Wow. THIS will be a compelling study with complicated recommendations.-Finish 31st to O'Connell-Modernize 1300 Rd-Buy farmland-Build new 2 lane road to CR 1057 on old farmland and go around wetlands-Buy enough farmland so it can someday be expanded to 4 lanes
